Rescue Rated Digging

Ortovox "KODIAK" Shovel for Mountain Rescue £69
Tough mountaineering shovel with unique clearing function and practical D-grip! Our KODIAK shovel boasts the largest shoveling volume (3.1 liters) in our product line, so it can safely be called the fastest of the bunch. The blade is also extremely rigid (AL 6061 T6 is the perfect material for shovels), yet this tool is easy to pack and fits easily into any ORTOVOX backpack. Its cutting edge is sharpened and its upper edge is equipped with non-slip ridges. The shaft is oval (for greater rigidity) and has a telescopic, non-slip rubberised surface. The D-grip is considered the most ergonomic grip and aids powerful shoveling of snow.The clearing function is truly unique. The frictional connection between the shaft and blade is virtually indestructible, saving critical seconds when used to save your companion's life. The editors of Bergsteiger magazine also recognised the perfection of Kodiak and honoured the shovel with their "Best Shovel" award!
